I think it would depend if there was a filling in the boobs or not. (please everyone, no puns) From what I can see by that pic, the boobs probably didn't weigh that much. I think the support dowels are to support weight, so if there is not that much weight then you would probably not need the dowels.

On the other hand, it couldn't hurt to use dowels. Just be careful that the cake doesn't sink around the dowels incase you cut the dowels too long. The cake should look realistic, but not too realistic!
